Any product that uses the PowerView display interface

Common reasons for unusual PowerView behavior are loose/damaged communications (CAT5) cable, corrupted firmware, or stuck/damaged buttons.

If the display is not reacting as expected, please try the following steps:
  1. Reboot the display by unplugging the cable that connects it to the UPS.
  2. If the issue persists, check for any buttons that are stuck in the "down" position.  A stuck button can often cause the display to act as if a different button is being pressed e.g. if the user presses the enter key, the display will act as if the down arrow is pressed.
  3. Re-flash the firmware of the display interface.  See knowledge base article FA156046.
  4. Replace the display interface.
